Math Modeling Dough

Along with following the recipe solo from their math activity book, the kids had a blast measuring and making their own modeling dough. It was very pizza-doughy and, unlike the pottery and clay we normally work with, the consistency of this continued to change as they worked with it. My daughter was especially into it--she went into full-on artistic mode and practically stood on the table during her self-discovering method of working the dough. We even shaped out numbers to do our equation practice for the day. It made for a fun morning!
